1. check if there are lights on the specific router port where you have connected the Vista (e.g. if it is on port 2, check if there are lights on #2 at the front panel of the router).
2. check the ip address by going to command prompt (click start-run-type cmd press enter. on the command prompt, type ipconfig/all)
3. ip address should be similar to what your Windows XP is getting. Subnet mask, gateway, and DNS servers should be identical.

Eg. If XP has a 192.168.1.100 IP, your Vista should have 192.168.1.x IP address where x is a variable number other than 100.

4. If your IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS seems aligned for both PCs, check your browser settings. Open IE, go to tools, internet options, network connection and make sure that never dial a connection is selected.

I received a new 2wire 2701HG-B modem router for AT&T DSL (replacing an older 2wire that burned out) and was able to hook up laptops right away no problem, but desktop doesnt recognize new modem how do...


are you on windows XP, Vista, MAC ???

you start out by seeing if you can ping the 2wire. The ip address you ping from a command prompt is the 2wire's gateway, 192.168.1.254

(you can get to the command prompt by clicking start, then click run, and type cmd and click ok on windows XP)
(on vista, you just click start and type cmd right above it where it says start search and hit enter on your keyboard)
(MAC's have a ping utility located by clicking on the harddrive, applications, network, network utility, and then the ping tab)

a little black window pops open, thats your command prompt

type ping 192.168.1.254 and hit enter on your keyboard

if you dont get replies, then your computer doesn't see the 2wire.

call tech support at 877-722-3755 24/7 for further support if required. We can make sure you nic is config properly, working properly, your not being blocked by a firewall, etc.

How to connect to wireless network using vista with SSID disabled


Normal 0 On your laptop, go into the “Manage Network Connections” and delete your network. On you router, disable the SSID. In the “Manage Network Connection” click the add connection button and enter the information about you network manually. Vista will tell you that connecting to a network that doesn’t broadcast it’s SSID is less secure and will ask you to verify. After that it will connect just fine.

The reason its less secure is because your computer will ask everything it can if its xyz network and someone with not-so-good intentions could say that its xyz network and you would connect to a insecure network and all the info that you pass on that network could be intercepted. Choose your poison I guess.

Good luck;

Windows xp wont connect to internet


Please check you LAN settings on your router (DNS) - usually it is 0.0.0.0 (assigned by provider)
Make sure your PC is using DHCP (TCP/IP properties -> Obtain IP Address Automatically & Obtain DNS server address automatically). Try "ipconfig /all" at others computers and compare with your PC (look at gateway & DNS). See if you can ping gateway and then outside address.

p.s. To access your router open Internet Explorer and enter http://192.168.0.1/
If it is not working, check the default gateway address on working computer and use it instead.

Problems getting a connection with vista operating system


This could possibly be an issue with the drivers provided by vista for your NIC. Try looking for updates for it or just tell me the model name of it.

Try settings up the MTU to manual.

1500/1400/1300 for cable connection.
1492 for DSL. if this may not work then yes, you need to upgrade the firmware.
